Review: Benefit You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer

HardlyFatal's Review of Benefit's You Rebel Tinted MoisturizerClaim: Our defiantly different tinted moisturizers give your complexion coverage, moisture and SPF 15 protection all in one.

Review: This shit is awful. The texture is weird and at the same time pasty and greasy. It also separates, so you have to either massage the tube prior to dispensing, or squirt some out and blend it well prior to application. And with a metal tube, you KNOW it will eventually crack and stuff will ooze out. More

Review: Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Claim: Clinique’s gentlest eye makeup remover. Rich, creamy lotion spreads evenly, quickly. Effectively removes all signs of makeup without leaving an oily after-feel. As gentle to the eyes as tears. For all skin types. Ophthalmologist Tested. Appropriate for contact lens wearers.

 Review: This creamy eye makeup remover works beautifully, fulfilling all that it claims. It has the faintest, faintest scent– I had to sniff really hard to smell anything at all.  It gets everything off, even waterproof mascara, without fuss or smearing. Best of all, no oily residue like with some eye makeup removers! I always get that stuff in my eyes and then my vision is all greasy. No worries, with this stuff!

Cost: $17.

Repurchase:  Yes.

Awesomesauce, mediocre, or crapola: Awesomesauce!

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel Moisturizer

Clinique Moisture Surge GelClaims: Light, comfortable cream/gel plumps skin with hydration for a full 24 hours. Fine lines, flakiness and tightness are washed away. In their place—a sense of supple, firm, vibrant well-being, even through shifts in humidity. One ‘drink’ and skin looks and feels happier, healthier.

Review: So I’m staying with a friend who’s a true Clinique freak– she literally NEVER buys ANY other skincare or makeup than Clinique. So I figured I’d avail myself of her immense collection of lotions and potions, and immediately hit upon a winner: Moisture Surge Gel.

Almay Pure Blends Loose Finishing Powder

Almay Pure Blends Loose Finishing Powder

Claims: Gives skin a polished, naturally perfect finish. Controls shine all day. Blend of antioxidant fruit and flower extracts, including Lotus, Orchid and Acai to nourish and hydrate.

Review: Fail #1: Package design.

Almay is jerking off for joy over how it’s 75% recycled material, yet they use so much of it, any benefit from the recycling is negated by sheer volume. You pull this cardboard box top off, and find… more box, containing the actual powder.
